Now here’s a surreal exchange:
Weeks later, a caller identified as “David from Athens” on Paul Finebaum’s show on the new SEC Network told the host that it was national title or bust in his mind, and that “if we can’t do it this year, Mark Richt needs to be fired.”
Finebaum, who has been tough on Richt in the past, quickly put the brakes on that, saying “he’s one of the best coaches in the league.”
The caller told Finebaum that anybody can come in and win 10 games at Georgia.
Finebaum’s gone soft.
